The Foundation published a Reference Guide on Gender Responsive Budgeting. It has two sections. The ﬁrst relates to the context of public ﬁnance management. It provides basic information on a government budget and its components. It gives details of the budget process/cycle, drawing attention to different entry points for promoting gender-responsive public ﬁnance decisions.
The second section focuses on GRB, giving its deﬁnition, explaining its multiple beneﬁts: inclusive democracy, effective governance and fair public ﬁnance management. The Guide also provides details of a 5-step approach to promote GRB. The information in this Guide is tailored to Pakistan’s context. It is general, so that it may be useful to parliamentarians, government ofﬁcials and civil society.
